Out-Of-School Time Programs

We inspire youth to continue learning, even after the last school bell has rung. Progressive Arts Alliance has programs for afterschool and during the summer.

Afterschool Programs

We share our talents with area schools and community organizations to provide art-making workshops to groups of students.

This spring, we're at Cleveland High School for Digital Arts, offering workshops in Digital Animation & 3D Printing and Digital Design & Installation Art. We're also at West Prep Academy for a Beatmaking Workshop. Students are using iPads as they learn about electronic music production.

We have a history of collaborating with community organizations, so contact us if you have an idea for partnership.

Summer Programs

This summer we're bringing our arts-based programs to area nonprofits and community organizations.

The Cleveland Heights-University Heights Library will host a series of hip-hop workshops for teens, and students who attend Open Doors Academy can enroll in "Picture Me" (photography), "Creepy and Cool Character Creations" (sculpture & animation), and "Larger Than Life" (puppetry & movement).

Contact us to learn how to customize a program for your school or organization.

Library Programs

Progressive Arts Alliance artists bring hands-on learning and creative experiences to the Cuyahoga County Public Library branches. Here's what their librarians think of our programs.

This summer, students from 11 to 18 can learn about digital animation through a week-long program that will be offered at various library branches. Click here and search for "animation" to learn more.
